Modernism, which examines historical incidents and persons as if they lived today rather than in the past, thereby separating history from its context and producing flawed conclusions.
For example, because for decades no state university has included religious activities and classes for all its students, the assumption is that it was probably the same in Jefferson’s day, so his views on education must have been secular, and evidence to the contrary is simply ignored as implausible. And because for decades, religious expressions have been expunged from the public square, it is simply accepted that it was also the same two centuries ago; thus, any Jefferson actions otherwise are simply dismissed out of hand as being inaccurate.
The only possible way to separate truth from fiction is to explore the facts as they are. “Jefferson Lies.”

There is an extreme shortage of common sense in today’s world, When looking back in history, I soon discovered this has always been a problem, Benjamin Franklin once said, ”Of all the senses, common sense seems to be the one that is used the least.”
As simple as it may seem, many seem to totally oblivious to it. Most if not all of the problems the world faces today could be solved if people would just sit back and think about what would seem to be the most obvious and simple solution to any issue. Often times people tend to overcomplicate the issues, when an easy and simple solution should be obvious.
I often think back to what my parents and grandparents believed and said, at the time I thought they were totally out of their mind and ignored it. I now wish I would have listened and followed their advice more often.
It is now evident they were a lot smarter than we gave them credit for. Many times, in today’s world, the schools and universities can no longer be counted on to teach truth and values that will guide someone through life.
Their teachings have become convoluted and are no longer sensible. Because so many have lost sight of the basic universal truths, they think these values no longer apply. Mention age old values and many people would have no idea what you were talking about.
We cannot keep teaching beliefs that are not based on solid time worn principles that have endured the test of time. The laws of Nature and/ or Nature’s God cannot be denied without serious consequences.
